Congratulations Wilton! Thats one hell of a hill to climb. I think the percentage of people that start law school and don't graduate is over 50%.

Where are you headed now?

PS - You might have got a better backdrop for your photo.
Oh, wait a minute - it's NJ, guess you couldn't find one!

Is that your sister or your mother standing next to you? 8-)

Really? I know that there were a number of people in my 1L year that never made it past second semester, but I'm sure that it's not half the class. Where did you get that statistic?

Bar review! Yay!!!!! ..... ugh. :roll:

So yeah, there's this test called "the bar exam" that I gotta pass, and I gotta do it in NJ and NY. Then there's the lovely patent bar, which I'll have to take in September or October. I thought life was supposed to get easier after school?

Not only is it NJ, it's Newark, NJ. So yeah, every stereotype about Jersey applies in that town.

That's my mom, a.k.a. the tuition bank. She's very happy to see me graduate too. ;)

I pulled it out of my @ss. I couldn't find the actual percentage on google so i made one up. :lol:

I've been in my own web of lies once again.

Well now . . . BBF's post makes sense and I feel like a horse's ass. By no means was my response to BBF's post meant - in any way - to denigrate your acheivement. Obtaining a law degree is a fantastic acheivement and congratulations to you. I expect that you will not only pass the bar examination but find much success in your chosen path. Once you have passed the bar and landed somewhere, please shoot me a PM with your contact information. You never know what might cross my desk that could be a referral source (just ask Bucfan).

I'm just glad that, after my recent move, I don't have to sit for the bar exam again. After 15 years of practice, they let us "old guys" file a motion and be admitted upon being vetted by the National Conf of Bar Examiners.

Congrats again. Well deserved.

A belated congratulations from me too. Really is a great accomplishment. My nephews(2) studied very hard but both passed the bar first time and I'm sure you will too.

If not I'm sure you will argue with them as to why you should have passed.
